If she is a 1st year analyst, she is probably not that critical to the client meeting. Have your manager give her half a day ofg and then talk to her tomorrow. No big deal and agree with mck1 & 2. Cut her some slack cuz we have all been there.

In my early years in consulting, I once ran a meeting with a CEO - the morning after I blacked out at a farewell for two colleagues rolling off the team.

Spent the whole meeting searching for an exit path if I need to vomit from the nausea. Killed the meeting, and rolled on to the next one.

I wouldn’t want to go back - but it was a charmed life. That office pushed work hard and play hard to the max

Fire her! Totally unacceptable! Grow up folks!
